that joe manchin has told a west virginia radio station that he is working with others, with democrats and republicans, on the universal background check. also on closing the gun show loophole. joe manchin, who, of course, campaigned for the office holding a rifle. this is a big change. >> well, for joe manchin, this is a critical time. he was just reelected to a full-term. he has a bit of breathing room, and this is an issue that he is willing to really try and find some ground. he will talk about his a-plus rating with the national rifle association, and a state like west virginia has a long history and kind of cultural tie to guns so, he understands it from that point of view. at the same time he is saying he wants to try to find a way to do more. now, today senator dianne feinstein introduced her assault weapons ban of 2013. she had been responsible for one back in the 1990s, and that is probably a step where joe manchin is not yet ready to go. is there a place where democrats can get together around something that relates to dealing with the gun violence issue, and also these othe

, it will be a difficult climb. i think it is interesting and surprising that joe manchin is in this fight, at least in terms of the background checks and i think we have seen this energy now on the gun control side that we haven't seen. >> 92% of all americans in favor of a universal background check. nra households, 85%, chris. we have said that number many times. but going back to this group of senators who are working on this deal reportedly, tom coburn, mark kirk, we know his ties to illinois and the chicago area, of course. and chuck schumer and we have seen legislation in new york, even i just saw a report that governor cuomo approval rating took a dip as a result of some people believing he went too far with new legislation in the state but when you look at this group, these four men here, are they the best faces to at least get something moving coming to background checks? set aside legislation on assault weapons. but just on background checks and widely supported. >> i mean, i think it's a good diverse mix in terms of if you will, centrist conservative democrats, moderate democrats. you ha

of the shooting, we saw some key moderate democratic lawmakers like joe manchin come out and say he was open to this conversation. he was open to having a debate about gun control, considering some of these measures. it's unclear whether that's going to be dissipate at all now as we've had more time elapse since the shooting and that emotional momentum may have slowed a little bit. we also see the nra. they're very powerful. still powerful. and they have a lot of allies in congress, not just among the republicans, but also with some democrats. the new senator from north dakota who was out over the weekend certainly doesn't seem open to a lot of these proposals. so it's going to be a legislative challenge for the white house to push forward whatever proposals they develop and get those passed in congress. >> are there people in the house and senate who have sort of cred on both sides they think they can use. we have heard a number of gun owners, people who have ratings with the nra saying things like you don't need an assault weapon to go duck hunting. >> you know, there are some. i think we'
